Demandware – Why Work For Us?


Our Operating Principles

At Demandware, Our Customers’ Success Comes First

{copy} {copy} {copy} {copy}


Putting our customers’ success first starts with how we act and operate internally. Our team, the people who build our products, grow our business, and manage Demandware’s day-to-day operations, are empowered by these four basic principles.

Everyday excitement. We move fast.We move fast. We grow fast. And we have a great time doing it.

Demandware brings together some of the brightest minds on the planet from a wide range of backgrounds. Here you’ll find the exciting mentality of a startup backed by the stability of an established, growing company. It’s a challenging, open, diverse, and friendly culture that encourages creative thinking from everyone—from product development to company operations to sales and marketing.

It’s simple: We enjoy a good time and each other’s company, and its obvious by all the fun things we do at Demandware. We have hackathon events, amazing summer outings, monthly theme parties and regularly hangout together at our on-site pub.

We’re also a fitness-minded community, and that means you can expect on-site weekly yoga sessions, company-wide fitness challenges, and employee-organized teams that take part in local charity road races.

“ love the fun events that are organized year round, giving us the opportunity to get to know the others in the company in a casual setting.”
 
Awesome benefits and work-life balance.
 

We expect a lot from our employees and in turn, they expect a lot from us. So we deliver. You’ll get all the stuff you expect from a top-notch company: medical, dental, vision, 401(k), disability coverage, company-paid group life and accident insurance, flexible spending and health savings accounts, travel assistance, a sabbatical program (four weeks after seven years of employment), ESPP and more!

But we don’t stop there. Demandware is a firm believer in work-life balance, and we demonstrate it through our flexible work hours and fantastic benefits. We offer a wellness program supported by an onsite health club at our Burlington headquarters, gym reimbursement, an Employee Assistance Program, and 20 days of paid time-off per year, plus 12 paid holidays in the United States. You even get your birthday off!

Community service-minded.

We take a go out of our way approach to foster a strong sense of community at Demandware. Every employee enjoys a yearly paid day off to participate in a community service activity of their choice. Pick from a  number of company-sponsored programs, including Toys for Tots drives, local volunteer days, and annual participation in the Life is good Festival—just to name a few.
 

Speak your mind.

Another key facet of our culture—and our success—is the importance we place on communication. All employees across the globe are invited to pose questions directly to our executive team during regular town hall meetings. Raise your hand or submit a question in advance—no topic is considered off-limits.

We also encourage open dialogue across peers, management, and executive leadership. Doors are always open for discussion, to address issues, to present new ideas, or simply to ask a question. Knowledge sharing is also encouraged on our online company workspace, a global vehicle for the exchange of ideas and information.

Get recognized for your efforts.

With great responsibility comes great reward. We believe that going above and beyond deserves to be called out. To that end, we have a peer-to-peer recognition program so employees can thank each other for their hard work with a gift certificate to local restaurants. We also sponsor the Innovation Award for cutting-edge ideas that move the company forward, as well as the Power of Teamwork Award for joint efforts that embody a shared approach to success.

Be Bold. Be Innovative. Be Demandware.Join us as we revolutionalize the world of digital commerce - and have fun doing it.

Fast Paced. Energetic. Collaborative. Fun. If these words describe the workplace you’re looking for, Demandware is where you belong. At Demandware our customer’s success comes first.

    I have been working at Demandware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, great work/life value and understanding, world-class benefits, amazing team building in turn promoting a positive and productive work environment. Competitive salaries for the regions they occupy and an exponential growth element. Upper management makes it a point to get to know WHO you are, not just what you do, and can and will engage in conversations with you no matter what level employee you happen to be. I haven't enjoyed a job like this since before the .com bubble burst in 2000. I know our CEO personally, and he is a fantastic guy to work with. Incredibly intelligent in many walks of life and the business, and an all around great guy.

    Cons

    Recently acquired, so there are some questions on how (if at all) the environment will change, but even this isn't a con, given that reviews of the purchasing company are favorable and indicate that they have a similar environment and culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. No matter what you may feel otherwise, your employees love and appreciate everything that you do for us.

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Demandware (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Process started with internal recruiter reaching out.
    Then technical phone screen and followed by onsite interviews with 6 people.
    Everyone was soft spoken and nice except one person who didn't seem interested in taking the interview. It felt like they had already selected someone for the position but were interviewing me as they couldn't cancel last minute.
